Cold Canyon  Violent Femmes

Song: Cold Canyon
Artist: Violent Femmes
Album: The Blind Leading The Naked
Transcribed by Wesley Torres <>
Verse 1:
[A]Travel 'round the country
Look out for what I can get
Another blessed highway
Hey mister you're gonna regret
'Cause y[D]ou just reminded me of something
I long to fo[A]rget
But no [E]matter how much he drink or smoke
[A]My memory's still clear
It hurts me dear
It's sharp today like it was yesterday
No I don't have much hope
Verse 2:
[A]Just the other night I came
Face to face with my past
Came down like a lightning bolt
Struck me with a flash
I was p[D]raying all along
That it would not l[A]ast
Oh [E]stop it stop it stop it stop it
Y'know the last time you rang
[A]I nearly died I almost cried
I put my pride in my pockets
And said you gotta stay cool cool cool
Y'know some things just gotta hang
Oh [D]Lord Lord
[A]Take me back
I'm g[D]oing back
[A]The long track
[E]So do yourself a favor
And leave me if you please
[D]I'm in a cold cold canyon
With a cold cold cany[A]on breeze
Verse 3:
[A]Woke up in a strange room
And then I saw a door
I went right over and opened it
Though I'd never been there before
Started pre[D]siding over the meeting
The chairman said I had the f[A]loor
[E]And when we adjourned everyone was satisfied
[A]We all got our money
Then went out where it was sunny
But it was kind of funny
To find out that I was such a dummy
But there's no place you can really hide
repeat Chorus:
Verse 4:
yay yay yay yay (repeatedly over normal verse pattern)
